Channel 4 Announce New Matt Berry Comedy

Channel 4 has commissioned Year of the Rabbit, a new six-part series starring BAFTA award-winning actor Matt Berry.

The series is irreverently and profanely inspired by the unhinged chaos of Victorian-era London and follows Detective Inspector Rabbit (Berry), a hardened booze-hound who’s seen it all, and his new, hapless, by-the-books partner played by Freddie Fox.

While they’re investigating a local murder, the lewd but insightful adoptive daughter, played by Susan Wokoma, of the chief of police joins them, becoming the country’s first female officer.
